What do you buy the tea aficionado with everything? Yep, you guessed it: a yellow submarine that doubles up as a tea infuser. Psychedelically bonkers, the silicone TeaSub will give tea time a wonderfully surreal edge. Blip…blip…blip…
Simply fill this jolly vessel with your favourite loose tea leaves, batten down the hatches (well, close the door) and prepare to dive as you immerse it into a cup or pot of steaming hot water.
Time for a dunk
Before you can yell ‘up periscope’ the tea will begin to infuse the water via little holes in the side of the sub. When your brew reaches the desired strength, simply surface your sub using its little chain.
Singing misguided Beatles songs is optional, making that eerie sonar blip sound whilst dropping sugar cube depth charges is obligatory. Think of it as a dishwasher safe, submarine-shaped plastic tea bag for loose leaves. More tea, skipper? Aye, aye, capt’n!
Suitable for 3yrs +
This is not a toy
Made from Silicone
Choking Hazard - small parts
The TeaSub submerges tea leaves to the bottom of your cup creating the perfect infusion of your favourite brew.
Hi will this work for coffee beans as well or just tea leaves?? James, Doncaster - 7th October 2012
Firebox says: Its designed just for Tea leaves James, although we are guessing you could fit coffee beans in here, just not that many!
If you cut open a tea bag and load it into the sub will it work and give the tea a better flavour? I think the bag filters out all the flavour? I'm a tea lover, and I'm hoping to get this soon along with the Scrabble mug. Connor, Wales - 7th May 2011
Firebox says: Sure will Connor.
Question not a review. . - Can you put a teabag in the submarine and then let it do it's thing? Suzanna, Kent - 27th March 2011
Firebox says: A teabag wouldn't work so well, this is designed for tea leaves.
I got the tea sub for my birthday. There are many similar devices, but none of them bring instant smiles like this one. There's something cheerful about the particular shade of yellow, and it works brilliantly. Only use for leaves and beans, as it's hard to pour grounds in. Claire, Kent - 28th January 2011
We make tea in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine. John, Liverpool - 18th November 2010
